Although it may be late to the party, Acer now joins in with its 10-inch netbook.
Acer America today announced that its 10-inch (which actually has a 10.1-inch screen, to be exact) Aspire One AOD150 is now making its way into U.S. stores.
Under the hood, the new AOD150 is nothing new. In fact, its components list look like something from last year. The Intel Atom N270 is at the heart, along with the 945GSE chipset, 1 GB RAM, Windows XP -- basically, what we’ve already seen from the Asus and MSI offerings.
The AOD150 also ships standard with a 6-cell, 4400 mAh battery to provide what Acer is advertising as up to six hours of computing time.
Perhaps in hopes to immediately set it self apart with a bit of fashion, the new Aspire One will come in four different colors: white, black, blue and red. And if a snazzy red netbook isn’t enough to reel in the consumers, Acer will fall back on what made its 8.9-inch such a hit -- the price.
The AOD150 will retail for $349.99. Check out Laptopmag's review of it here.
what i dont like is the screen resolution (1024x600).
I guess the only real benefit is that the 6-cell battery now comes standard. You know how hard it was to find a 6-cell version of the original in stores? Impossible. Thankfully Newegg got theirs back in stock in time for Christmas.
These units are already near the no profit margin as compared to other laptops...
